Aston Villa fans have had mixed reviews after Gaston Pereiro suggested he was weighing up an offer from them.
“PSV told me that they have already come to an agreement with Cincinnati. I told my representative that if there is a chance to stay in Europe I prefer that. He is working on an offer from Aston Villa,” he revealed.
The comments have certainly got Villa fans talking, as it seems that they could be closing in on making a signing.
But not every Villa fan is totally enthused by the thought of bringing in the Uruguayan.
While some claret and blues supporters feel that bringing Pereiro in would be a wise move, others are totally unfamiliar with his quality.
Exactly the type of player that'll do nothing in the prem then— Couldbeanything (@Couldbeanythin) January 15, 2020
You know a player must be good when he’s wanted by Cincinnati to be fair— AJS (@ajsfounded71) January 15, 2020
Who? Im so confused who r we talking about??— GetComboed (@GetComboed1001) January 15, 2020
Left footed, typically a CAM, a dribbler with a habit for key passes as shown by his WhoScored stats, maybe Smith is thinking of having him on the right wing to play a similar role to Grealish? #avfc— Reece J (@ReeceyBones) January 15, 2020

Wouldnt actually mind this one— SL (@AVFC_SSxL) January 15, 2020
I hope this one is true. He hasn’t played much but was pipped to be a good player a few years ago. Hasn’t turned into the star people thought but he can play and might just need the right situation.— Aston Villa Rise (@aston_rise) January 15, 2020
Pereiro would add a goalscoring threat to Villa’s midfield and some creativity if he was to join.
But Dean Smith’s side appear more focused on making striking additions, so it would be somewhat of a surprise if a new playmaker was to be snapped up.
